      4.35 Another Wednesday, another great Urban Fantasy This book could have easily gotten the full 5 star rating, but it was a bit too repetitive at times, enough to be noticeable In many ways it reminds me of another of my favorite UF series they are very exciting, have kick ass leading ladies, and act first think later approach to fighting evil Gin and Jane are strong and have powers, but still barely get out alive at the end of each book, mostly because they have luck like no other They also hav [...]

      Jane Yellowrock is like that girlfriend you have that is totally great in every aspect of her life except men She is totally badass and I love the skinwalking aspect of her with Beast It is a really cool concept and her being Native American really fits in with the mystery and history to her character but she is totally clueless when it comes to men For a gal who had been out of circulation for a few years, I was getting a lot of attention Too bad they were cop, blood servant, and angry vamp I d [...]

      Say what Ok, not as good as the last one, but I really really liked it And what I absolutely loved was the story, the myth, the history of this series As I said, for me, a great UF PNR needs to have some fantastic world building Yes, other stuff matter too, but for me, this is one of the most important And boy, am I enjoying this one

      4.5 stars I really like this series and the main protagonist, Jane Yellowrock Despite the fact that professionally she is the Business, she is vulnerable in personal relationships I love the fact that she is an ugly crier This was high action adventure Jane could, and nearly did,have died several times in this book Beast is also a character in her own right and seems to be coming to the fore.Jane Yellowrock has joined the ranks of Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson and October Daye as one of my Urban [...]

      08 02 2017 Another great buddy read with the awesome girls and guy over at BBB.Jane is still in New Orleans and the vampire council has hired her to hunt and kill the rogue who is letting loose newly turned vampires on humanity A job that has put Jane smack in the middle of vampire politics and rivalries And if that s not enough she has to watch her back because Leo Pellisier, the Blood Master of New Orleans, is still blaming her for his son s death and is out to seek revenge on Jane.Luckily for [...]

      Vampires and witches and skinwalkers, O MY Faith Hunter s 2010 novel Blood Cross, the second in the very entertaining Jane Yellowrock series, is a fun entry into the genre.Hunter s excellent world building and writing distinguishes this series from the sub genre of urban fantasy female Cherokee skinwalkers who actively hunt and kill vampires and are befriended by witches in an alternate history universe Jane is head and shoulders over the rest skinwalkers like Tina Tailfeather, Trudy Turkeyneck [...]

    8. Werner on said:

      The first book of this series was one of the best supernatural fiction reads, and best action heroine books, that I ve ever read It had me fully prepared to continue reading every installment of the series This second novel picks up just a few days after the end of the first the denouement of the latter was only the beginning in cleaning up some dark skullduggery afoot in the vampire community of Hunter s slightly alternate New Orleans As expected, this one thrust Jane into even high risk actio [...]

    10. Alex on said:

      This second book in the Jane Yellowrock series was not as great as the first one for me, mainly because Jane s love interest didn t turn out to be the one I preferred However, the story, the writing and the dialogue were still great.I was disappointed because the love scene with Jane s choice of bed buddy was not detailed at all, just one sentence near the end Oh well, maybe the author is saving the juicy stuff for when Jane comes back to her senses and chooses view spoiler Leo hide spoiler grin [...]

      4.5 Stars Somebody in New Orleans is creating rogue vampires and Jane Yellowrock has been employed to hunt them down But with employers who look at her and see their next meal, she needs to tread carefully This series is completely astounding It s reminiscent of Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series and Jennifer Estep s Elemental Assassin series, but Faith Hunter somehow manages to do everything just a little better Synopsis Cover Book Overall

      2.5 tarsThe first book in this series surprised me into enjoying it and checking out the rest of the books Unfortunately, this book is a disappointing follow up to the first book.Jane Yellowrock is still in Louisiana, even after completing her job for the Vampire Council It seems she has been hired on to do some work for them a rogue is making new vampires and must be stopped For a long while the story just seemed to be going nowhere, so I went back and checked the synopsis, and it was vague, m [...]

      Reread on 02 27 17 Wow what a difference 6 years makes I really liked the book this time I could do without the love triangle the other guy didn t stand a chance especially with the relationship he was currently in I loved how Jane kept her sense of humor even with her past that could would make most people morose and world weary Now this book is a favorite Who knew I d do such a huge flip on this book Previous review on 02 04 11 This book takes place almost directly after the first book Leo is [...]

    14. Carol. on said:

      Enjoyed it Nice follow up to her first book Current urban fantasy that is action problem solving than romance, although she does have a couple of interested men around More character building, and I enjoyed seeing the relationship develop between Jane and her best friend Molly, and Molly s children I also enjoyed a side trip into purification rituals that helped remind Jane of her heritage and help prepare her for her confrontations.

      4 Stars Didn t love this quite as much as the first, but it was still awesome I really like the complex world building in this series and am even intrigued about Beast and Jane s past now I want to know MORE Can t wait to dive into the next one

      4.5 5.0REALLY enjoying this series My very favorite type of Urban Fantasy are those that hold a strong action world blend along with a great romance on the side The romance area is the ONLY thing I see as a bit week in this book Jane s choices are not anything readers who are invested in her happiness would ever want to see her with The rest is top notch addictive enjoyment Note While I rated this a clean read no sex , it is full of violence mostly against vampires, monsters and other urban fant [...]

    17. Dana on said:

      I m definately enjoying this series but I found myself torn with this installment I was caught thinking often that we were getting a better view of something i.e plot, character development, romantic progress, Jane s history , then conversely feeling that we could have used just one tidbit I m glad that the majority of smaller issues in the previous book found resolution here I was not pleased with the choice in romantic partners though, but realized that said choice was most likely not long fo [...]

      2017 Summer Lovin Reading List Jane Yellowrock is growing on me Faith Hunter is a good writer and I m enjoying the world that she has crafted to show off Jane s talents I appreciate that Jane has female friends right from the get go And they tease her about the various men who are circling, trying to win Jane s favour Also a pleasant change is the mystery and puzzle solving aspects of the book taking higher priority than the personal relationships Not that I mind a love interest, but I prefer wh [...]

      Since I actually thought the first book, Skinwalker was pretty good, Blood Cross has been sitting on my TBR pile for a long time for no reason other than I buy way books than I can possibly read and I am always chasing the next new release, so somehow this made it to the lower strata of the pile without getting read But someone clued me into the free download of a short story prequel to the series Kits which pulled me back into the world of Cherokee, rogue vamp hunting, shape shifting, Harley r [...]

      I skimmed, I really hate skimming I m a book a day reader and this took me 3 days to get through.The story was bogged down with too many long talks of vamp politics and unclear visions or dreams of Jane s past Even the action scenes were convoluted and seemed rushed I was left wondering how, what, when, and that s it Completely anticlimatic Still not digging the love interests and the witchy bffs husband and sister show up in this one and are even mysterious then Jane Her best friends husband b [...]

      Buddy read with the Wednesday UF group of BBB.This almost made it to a 5 star rating Damn, I really wanted it to be awesome enough to earn it And for a while it seemed that it will But then Jane proved to be a little TSTL and ruined it all Like my dear sister wife Choko pointed out in her review there are a lot of similarities between Jane and another female UF MC Gin And those are NOT good similarities They re both reckless and borderline suicidal and firmly believing that they re the biggest, [...]

      Blood Cross4.5 StarsExcellent world building and characterization The detailed explanation of the origins of the vampires and their unique brand of politics is distinctive and intriguing as is the information on the witch covens and their cold war with the vampires.The plot revolving around the creation of new, rogue vampires and the attempt to keep them sane by sacrificing witch children is fast paced and absorbing, especially as the villains soon hit very close to home Jane is a fascinating he [...]

      4.5 Beast is the BestAudiobook Great audiobook to listen too There is so much world building and almost a little to much of the history lessons but all and all I loved it Finally got to meet Molly and the kids They come for a visit to New Orleans and disaster strikes We get a little action on the romance side and I am still torn on which male suitor I like best Beast protect kits I am officially Team Beast

      Some thoughts I don t like it when I think I m starting an Urban Fantasy book, and get Paranormal Romance Paranormal Harlequin in stead If an audiobook narrator can say phrases like not actual book quotes then she bit my throat and I could feel my life pour out of me and his gentle hand touched my face and I kissed him passionately in EXACTLY the same tone, what does that tell you The plot sucked I was bored out of my mind with these nonsense vamp histories and adult dress ups, and the plot focu [...]

      Jane Yellowrock seems to be making herself indispensable to the vampire community Which is a little ironic considering she is a vampire hunter She is fresh off the heels of killing a shapeshifter, masquerading as the son of the Master Vampire of the City of New Orleans, Leo Now, she has been tasked by the vampire council with figuring out who has been creating new vampires and letting them run wild in the city Oh, and did I mention that Leo has gone round the bend crazy since he found out his so [...]
